7:34 am
so it turned out toxrtí+dç be a rather quiet. but still, his a very informative experience. i toured the station beforeg# the ride-along didle=sp roll call and for that";,pihd c.e/og lt. darrylb fong was in charge thatyq1o>ñ4e night.xd sgt. jesus pena did theo;(o.hñ ride-along. i rode in his car. and had a spontaneous tour ofnkilzj4q ythe emergency call center on turk street. which turned out to be very enlightening to see howbb c.a.d. center works firsthand. that turned out to be terrific and lori stern, the operations manager there, took considerable time to go through the details of that operation. and i commissioners that haven't
7:35 am
experienced that yet. there are two things that i kind of came away with i'd like tõ éa' share with the other commissioners. one is the challenges of the northern policing district. it's very -- av[4óvpv very diverse district, but very dense in 7wy population. itú)5y5ibxv includes the western district and public housing there but also the high rises in the russian hill area,2=jnrd the mansions in pacific heights, and+7of lot of activities and22ñ celebrations in the city. and then of courseg&ç6 jx there's the marina. so there's quite a bit of demand, you9gtg'g9 on our officers here. and apparently a lot of calls.ñ notwithstanding this particular night. the other things that struck me
7:36 am
wíp+qe notwithstanding the challenges of this area is that there is aws [x challenge of staffing there. during roll call, where you would ordinarily expect to see perhaps two o6ios?gj for each car that's going out all but one car only had one officer going out. so they -- you know, as -- they're not alone but they are experiencing staffing challenges&=m7opv] there. notwithstanding&t&sqs that you couldn't really tell because everything was very professionally and efficiently organized with the staffing that was there. and very much under control. and well done. so i am very appreciative to captain mannix and lt. fong sgt. pena and lore lori stern for a terrific night at northern.
